Group name too large

One of my clients tried to send a message to her peer. She got an error message of "Fields are too large". She picked up a group name from her personal address book which contains a lot of usernames. Do you think the group name contains names more than 64K?

Yes, that is the problem. If the group names are from the personal address book, and the groups are cascaded, the Notes client EXPANDS all groups when sending from the personal address book. If the combination of the cascaded group names exceeds the allowable size, then that error would appear. Recommend to the user that they use server groups and this problem will not occur because the groups will not be expanded.
